Crinkly Nappies - How to Stop Adult Nappies From Rustling

Posted by Will 01/07/2016 2 Comment(s) Adults,

 

This post is from Alice, one of our customers.
 
Hello everyone, Alice here again. You might have already read my Spinal Cord Injury blog post. In my post, you will have read that I'm now incontinent, post RTA.
 
It's taken me a long while to be able to talk about this to anyone outside of the hospital, trust me. Recently though, I've accepted that things are going to be this way and I just want the best protection I can possibly find.
 
I've recently started to wear Molicare Super Plus nappies
 
I wear these nappies 24/7 currently and they are the best there is (for me!). My only problem is that they're quite noisy/crinkly - probably because they have plastic backing. 
 
It's important to note however that plastic backed nappies are the only ones that work for me - the cotton backed ones just don't. They seem to leak a lot quicker for some reason and I simply don't feel protected.
 
I use a wheelchair so chances are nobody will hear this crinkling noise as I move. Nonetheless it still makes me paranoid! I can always seem to hear it, even when I slightly adjust my position in my wheelchair.
 
By chance, I was wearing a dress today and tights. I was surprised why I hadn't thought of wearing tights to minimise the crinkling noise before now. I hardly heard a crinkle all day!!! I guess the tights just hold the nappy in place better. Obviously this will only work for ladies. I'm not sure how men would find this!!
 
I obviously won't be wearing tights every day and they do have their cons also. Changing takes a lot longer when wearing tights and also wearing them with jeans/trousers I think would be a nightmare. It's a solution though for important occasions eg weddings or birthday parties or nights out when you just want the extra crinkle minimised!
 
Maybe someone else has a better idea?
 
Love
 
Alice
 
Note from Every Nappy - Although Alice didn't get on with them, we have products with soft paper (like cotton) backing. The MoliCare Soft-All-in-One range is almost completely silent and works for many people. And for gents, try wearing nylon jogging trousers or shell suit trousers (if you don't mind looking dated) over plastic nappies as they rustle anyway!

Maybe you could try guy's boxer briefs. They certainly help me with the same problem and wouldn't be as much a pain to deal with as tights. I've moved to the new Abriform Air-Plus, but since you don't like the fabric backed, the boxers may mitigate your problem.
